    When I turned on the archived NBC Gold, it had Paul Swangard and Josh Cox; then a blank screen, which probably corresponded to an ad on NBCSN. Now no commentary and not much in the way of splits,...

    I don't need commentary, but it would be nice to get at least 5K splits. First 5 for men was 14:45, but I haven't seen a split for women. Of course, I'm doing two things at once, so I probably missed...

    Shalane Flanagan was touting how perfect the pacing was, as if the pacers were doing it by themselves. They did a great job protecting Kipchoge from air resistance, but the PACING was done for them....

    As of right now, NBC Gold has 11PM PDT, which is 2 AM EDT and 8 AM in Vienna.

    Interesting note: the pace is set up to hit 1:59:50, which is almost 2:50.4/kilo and 14:12 per 5K, just a tiny bit...

    Well, however they did it, they got the stadium quite full starting with "Barshim day". On TV, anyway, it seemed like a WC crowd and noise after that.

    Hear, hear!!
    This was very good coverage on NBC Gold -- the separate streams for field-event finals, showing the race in a window while showing field attempts.
    The last couple of days, though,...

    I guess she didn't decide to win the 10,000. >:-)
    But, she certainly decided to win the world cross!

    Obiri set a near-perfect pace for getting ~14:40 PBs; Kipkemboi, Gemechu, Rengeruk, Worku, Weightman, Schweizer, McColgan and Purrier to take her out to dinner!




    Yeah, to really absorb the...

    Huh? She ran two very good 1500s, beating Muir, Tsegay, Simpson and GD-S in Rome and beating Hassan, Tsegay and Arafi in 3:55 in Rabat, then limped to the finish in 4:00.xx in Zurich. She was hurt.

    And she might break the WR there. She ran a Euro record 65:15 in her first one, which was foreshadowing that she might do a great 10,000.
    Valencia was where Abraham Kiptum ran 58:18, just broken by...

    Yes, this race was much more like a DL, rabbited race than a championship race. All those guys who set PBs and NRs should take Cheruiyot out to dinner! Same with Hassan, dragging them to 5 PBs and 2...

    I was surprised when Gebrhiwet dropped back, since he won the Ethiopian trial in 26:48 over Barega and Kejelcha. Cheptegei also finished very well at Pre, winning the 2 Mile, a race too short for...

    You could just do 2 heats, six qualify; this puts a lot of importance on seeding, but it does remove the advantage of being in the last heats.
    Personally, I prefer pure place qualifying.

    It looked to me, and the commentators, that he was telling Kigen not to sprint, that they didn't need to.

    Thanks for that info. It sounds like the "Track Events" stream on NBC Gold and the IAAF stuff are quite similar, maybe the same pictures with different commentators. The big advantage of NBC Gold is...

    Exactly. And it's diluting the 400 talent in the 400s and 4x4s. It also give a huge advantage to US, Jam. and a few others, especially now that they let teams change the whole lineup, not just half...

    Does the IAAF have separate streams for field events? If not, when a longer race is on (3000+), do they interrupt the race for field action, and, if so, do they keep the race going in a separate...

    On a completely other note, when one of the jumpers jiggled the bar and hurried to get out of the pit, Rob Walker said that if the athlete exits the pit while the bar is still up, it's a good jump....

    That's why you need to have the Live Results going while you watch the action, but don't look at them before an attempt, because they are usually a bit ahead of the TV stream.

    The African record was 17.37 by Tareq Bougtaib of Morocco, so Zango's last 3 NRs are also ARs.
    This, and the W PV, were really great competitions!

    The "Race Analysis" files are really weird. For the 800s, some of them show a 300-meter time and a 100-meter segment time from which you can derive the 200 time. Others have a 200 times. For the...
